Partner Squats: A Hysterical Challenge
This is a wicked bootcamp move I use often with my students! It’s a tougher variation of the wall sit: having a partner makes it more challenging to find & keep your balance.
Today: find someone close to your height, and give it a try!
- Go back to back first, then slowly lower down & walk your feet out until you’re in a squat.
- Use each other for balance, but place your weight in the heels of your feet.
- Try to be a ‘wall’ for your partner. The more planted & stable you are, the easier it is on your quads.
- Keep your core tight!
Once you have the basic partner squat down, pass a ball (or a weight) from side to side, without breaking your squat. This will challenge your core: keep your hips facing forward and twist through the torso as you pass.
Do 20 reps one way, and 20 the other. You can also pass it overhead and/or between your legs.
